UCL (University College London)

Course Introduction

The four'year BA Dutch and History of Art is a joint honours programme split equally between your two chosen subjects. The language part of your degree is taught in the School of European Languages, Culture and Society where will take modules not only in language (speaking, listening, reading, writing and translation) but also in cultural topics including literature, history, film, linguistics, politics and other relevant field designed to complement your language learning. With a wide variety of modules on offer, you will be able to tailor your degree to your areas of interest.

Your third year is a Year Abroad, spent in a country where your language is spoken.

UCL houses the oldest centre for Dutch Studies with the most comprehensive Dutch Library in the English'speaking world. You will gain near native understanding and translation skills in Dutch as part of your degree, and you will also learn about historical, cultural and political developments across the Low Countries as a whole. You will study in a small, friendly department, with an excellent staff'student ratio unusual in higher education nowadays.
